On a quiet block of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens–lined with similar round-fronted row houses and low-rise brick apartments–this thoughtfully-renovated, 20-foot-wide limestone townhouse is move-in ready, no contractor required. Asking $1.95 million, 176 Lefferts Avenue changed hands in 2014 for $1.6 million, and just before that in 2013 for $830,000 to a local developer–so you can see how much property values in this neighborhood have changed in recent years. Though the home has been renovated for use as a one-family, it’s legally a two-family if you wanted to take advantage of the income–or other expansion–potential.

Inside, you’ll find warmth and period details as well as state-of-the-art modern upgrades. While the home, at only two floors and a finished English basement, is hardly palatial, it’s still a townhouse in the city, with four bedrooms, a private backyard and plenty of room for living–within a couple of blocks of an express subway.

A big, bright, airy triple parlor floor is where the living happens; here you’ll find a powder room and a pretty cook’s kitchen with marble countertops, a Bertazzoni range, a Bosch dishwasher, a Fisher Paykel refrigerator and a built-in 70-bottle Bosch wine fridge.

Just off the kitchen a landscaped garden features a bluestone patio and custom cedar seating. An in-ground irrigation system makes yard maintenance effortless.

Upstairs, a skylight summons sunlight to the hallway between the home’s four bedrooms, all with big closets. The master bedroom features beautiful bay windows, exposed brick and a skylit master bath.

The master bath offers a double sink and a walk-in glass-walled shower. The other bedrooms also share a full bath; both are done in clean black-and-white subway tile.

The finished English basement is perfect for use as a guest room, media room or gym. You’ll also be happy to find a laundry room, a big pantry, more storage and a half bath on this floor (no need to bring the party upstairs). Additional updates include central air, a high-end security system, a garbage disposal, all-new insulation, windows, electric system, roof and boiler and updated plumbing, so there’s nothing to do but unpack.
